Regional power is growing stronger, and thus needs to assert its presence, to be symbolized in the urban space. Immediately the building shows its interior composed of debate and meeting areas. The luminous web of the various rooms is defined by the office buildings, which are coiling around and over it, thus diffusing the natural light and multiplying the sights.

In the centre of Brussels, the Rue de la Loi, although at the heart of the European administration’s quarters, is lacking in any urban dynamic. In 2008, an international competition was co-organised by The Brussels Regional Authority and the European Commission, to create a powerful image of the European entity, and the symbol of its integration into the Belgian capital, whilst at the same time, creating functional and social density, by building residential units, commercial structures and public spaces.
